One of two men charged in Route 66 shooting turns himself in

One of two men, who police said were identified in a video depicting a violent shootout in a West Toledo bar, turned himself in, was booked in the Lucas County jail, and then released after posting a $5,000 bond Monday morning, authorities said.

Lashon Sawyer, 38, of 2012 Balkan Place, who worked as a cook in the bar, was arrested at the Safety Building downtown about 10:35 a.m. and booked into the jail about an hour later. By noon, he was released from the jail after posting the bond through a bondsman, according to jail records.

Mr. Sawyer, who has no criminal record, is charged with discharging a firearm in the city limits, a misdemeanor, and with having a firearm in a liquor permit premises, a felony.

Police are continuing to work to identify others who were involved, Toledo police Sgt. Phil Toney said on Monday.

Marquese Robbins, 32, whose last known address was 1103 Norwood Ave., was charged with four counts of felonious assault for firing a gun within the Route 66 Kitchen. A known member of the Lucas County Gang, or LCG, Robbins has an extensive criminal record dating to 1998, police said.

There was no word of his arrest as of about 1 p.m. Monday.
